Environmental Toxicology Seminar Series

Fall Quarter 2020

The seminar series needed to be adjusted due to the steps the university has taken related to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we have scheduled the seminars via Zoom. All students are required to participate via Zoom for the seminar presentations.
